Learn to unlock the power of virtual reality (VR) with our Game Coder Camp. We'll look at how Oculus Rift (Virtual Reality system) works and how we can use it when developing games using the Unity game engine.

Your VR journey begins by delving into the Unity engine, learning how to create the vast landscapes where your games will take place and how to fill it with outstanding detail. Then you’ll be programming playable characters to inhabit the worlds you have created, working with physics simulation, creating intelligent AI agents to work with or against your player and a tonne of other exciting features you can add to your games. All this will be wrapped in a VR compatible interface, where you control both the interface and the game using a VR headset and controllers!

Throughout the week you'll be learning about debugging techniques to produce a polished result, and the necessary considerations to take when creating a high-quality game. By the end of the course, you'll be confident using both the Unity game engine and VR technology – ready to explore and continue with your own ambitious projects!

He taught us what everything in the code did and had an acceptably filled meme bank. We used the Unity engine (Ironic that this course is in the UK then...) which is used by many pro

Game Coder Review

Throughout the week, I learned a lot about how to use the Unity Engine as well as how to write scripts using c#. When I started the course I only had knowledge of Java, but as the week progressed, I learned about the similarities between Java and c#, allowing me to learn not only about Unity, but al

This is amazing!!!

Game Pro was really fun, if just a little disorientating. Mike was a good teacher, as he waited for us to catch up before moving on, and we managed to get really far ahead of where we were supposed to be.

GAMEPRO SUMMER CAMP

Having been to many Funtech summer camps I can honestly say that this is the best one. The tutor (Mike) was extremely helpful and we completed everything well ahead of schedule which meant there was extra time to spend on the games we made and just having some fun. The course was highly enjoyable,
